View Full Version : Going from a 2nd-init to a .596 ROM?

From my understanding, ROMS like Liquid and Cyanogenmod are 2nd-init, correct me if I'm wrong, and then there are other ROMS that actually require you to upgrade to .596 rooted to apply them. I don't know any specific ones that are actually .596, in fact, it'd be cool if someone had a small list, if not, it's cool, but ANYWAY, the main point of this was....

When I choose to install a .596 ROM, can I just clear data/cache and install the 2 part install over top and then the ROM, or am I going to have to SBF and start from there?

2nd init (CM4DX..SSX..MIUI..JUSTICE..LIQUID ..OMFGB)

.596 (APEX RC 2..LIBERTY V8/9..SHUIJI..DARKSLIDE..)

So you need two part gb install from stock froyo...if you dont have a stock backup then sbf best way...

This is going to sound stupid lol, but what do I use to make backups, I haven't had to make one in forever, Titanium, or.... ? Then just go back to stock and install 2 part and I'm good? Should I clear data/cache or anything or no.

I just flashed back to Liberty from MIUI earlier and sbf'd, rooted, then to two part .602.

I thought I read a thread that they were testing going from 2nd-init to a .596 backup and vice versa.....can't remember exactly though.

Liberty v.9/Watermark theme/OC'd

It's ok some peeps don't make backups ...use clockwork recovery to make backups ...for instance on 2nd init roms you can use rom manager to get to clockwork and make backups..

Lets say you sbf ...you now need d2 bootstrap to get to clockwork ..now you can flash the two part to gingerbread .596 or .602 that just came out ...when on GB now use d2 bootstrap to make GB backups it you wish like liberty or Darkslide ..etc
